Toyota Recalls 33,380 Corollas

BEIJING, Aug. 15 (Kyodo) — Toyota Motor Corp.'s China subsidiary said Monday it will recall 33,380 Toyota Corolla EX sedans for repair to fix an engine computer malfunction.

The company said the onboard computer controlling engine functions may fail when the computer case is exposed to static electricity, making it impossible to start the engine or causing the engine to stall.

The Corolla EX models are produced in China and sold only in the domestic market.
